How to Make Cheesy Stuffed Red Peppers

Step-by-Step

  1. Heat oven to 400.
  2. Spray a little olive oil spray in a medium size saute pan and heat on a medium flame. Add onion, garlic and cilantro to the pan.
  3. Saute about 2 minutes and add ground beef. Season with salt and garlic powder, and cumin and brown meat for several minutes until meat is completely cooked through.

  6. Cut the bell peppers in half lengthwise, and remove all seeds. Place in a baking dish. Spoon the meat mixture into each pepper half and fill it with as much as you can.

  8. Cover tight with aluminum foil and bake for about 35 minutes. Top with shredded cheese and enjoy.
